About Jessy


Bio

I am a professional proofreader and writing professor, with an undergraduate degree in English and Theater and an MFA from Northwestern. I teach screenwriting, play writing, and creative writing, but I also have a lot of experience with academic writing/essays.

I am a professional proofreader and writing professor, with an undergraduate degree in English and Theater and an MFA from Northwestern. I teach screenwriting, play writing, and creative writing, but I also have a lot of experience with academic writing/essays. Aside from my English degree and my teaching experience, I also spent a year at Oxford during my undergraduate degree, researching, writing, and digging into essays in a one-on-one setting once a week. This added to both my essay-writing savvy and my strong background in English literature and theater history.

Because of my proofreading background, I am also especially helpful when it comes to explaining the rules of grammar and citations for many different styles. In my work as a proofreader, I also do software testing. I'm able to provide training on Microsoft Office Suite, Final Cut Pro, general PC and Mac usage, and a number of other specialized software.

I am comfortable teaching all ages. I have experience teaching preschoolers, elementary students, high schoolers, college students, and adults! I am friendly and encouraging, and I genuinely want to see my students succeed.

Macintosh

When I am not tutoring, I work as a Quality Assurance Manager at an e-learning company, where I test various types of applications all day on both Macs and PCs, and I've grown very familiar with the capabilities of both systems and their applications. I am frequently called upon to troubleshoot problems with the computers and their software. I also freelance as a video and sound editor and have successfully trained many people to use iMovie, Final Cut, Audacity, and Logic Pro, among other programs.
